Karl Zinsmeister: Contemptible

"BEIRUT — Sigh Another attack on the war corps by a guy who’s now the senior domestic policy advisor for President Bush. He’s also the guy who wrote this gem:
In another article, this one at the American Enterprise Institute’s Web site on June 20, 2005, Zinsmeister, after another period as an embed, wrote, “What the establishment media covering Iraq have utterly failed to make clear today is this central reality: With the exception of periodic flare-ups in isolated corners, our struggle in Iraq as warfare is over….Contrary to the impression given by most newspaper headlines, the United States has won the day in Iraq…. the battle of Iraq is no longer one of war fighting—but of policing and politics.” The article is titled, “The War Is Over, and We Won.”
Back to Iraq
Can these people be anymore insulated from reality.

Yeah, an embed that says pretty much what all the milblogs tell you: things are not nearly as bad as the news would lead you to believe--- so who is removed from reality?

Please link the Milblog that remotely talks about the situation on the ground. As a matter of fact please link to your favorite milblog so I can read it too.
We here at TFW read a wide variety of sources from media to first hand accounts. but I have yet to see much good news coming from Iraq or Afghanistan. Even the pilot that just called into the Rush show said that he was taking constant fire from the ground, "my plane comes back with holes in it every day", you know what he was asking for? to be unleashed, to be aloud to do the job he was trained to do. Right after that Rush ran out of time, even the most republican troops that call in to Rush say they have their hands tied, his demeanor sounded to me just like that AP Blog I posted from Ramadi, went something like " we just go out get killed and then come back in, we can't hold the ground with the troops we have". That is the reality I see.
